Cheap second hand and recycled bricks
Buy used and recycled bricks Sydney.
Recycled bricks are bricks that have been removed and cleaned from old buildings and walls. With modern cement mortars the mortar is often too hard for the bricks to be cleaned, for that reason most recycled bricks have been previously laid in lime mortar making the cleaning process easier.
Recycled bricks can date back to convict times where original sand stocks were used and often have the makers stamp in the frog of the brick.
Colour and size of recycled bricks
Colours and sizes of these bricks vary greatly depending on the area that the clay and shale was removed from the ground, however with such a variant of colour the bricks can give a great appearance on your project.
Other types of recycled bricks which have been very popular in recent times are the dry pressed common brick which when mixed correctly can give an industrial look often used on feature walls in restaurants and cafes, again colours can vary greatly with many common bricks having been painted on one side.
Common bricks in most cases have rough sides and are not always uniform as they were once used on common walls and not a face brick with true edges.
